To access the comics, you'll need to log in with an Amazon or Comixology account and add the comics you'd like to your cart. The price should then be listed as $0.00 and before you can click 'Complete Order' you'll need to tick a box agreeing that you won't print the comics. Once you've completed your order, you'll be able to read the comics from your account.
Alternatively, download the free DC app at the App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android. Once you've signed in, scroll along to the 'Free' section where you'll be able to download the comics onto your device.
